Careers Education, Impartial Advice and Guidance


We want to work with pupils and parents/carers to raise  awareness  of the world of work and to equip pupils  with unbiased information, so that they  can make good choices. Aspiration: every pupil has special skills, qualities and abilities.

We will support pupils to help them  to recognise what these are and to realise the huge range of paths that they  can take. It’s crucial that in today’s competitive world pupils  aim high and recognise that they must explore a range of opportunities, in order to find what’s best.  It’s vital to be open to finding out about different things, even if pupils think they know what they  want to do. Take every opportunity provided to explore!

Careers Journey

Each year pupils are on a journey to find out more about their skills and qualities and the world of work.  This is a live programme but in essence it incorporates:

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

Year 10

Year 11
